That old saying "never say never" certainly applies to Robbie Williams and the announcement that he is to rejoin his old group Take That. If you remember he left the group in a huff, jealous of Gary Barlow and frustrated with a management who wanted him to behave like a good boy in a boy band, when he wanted to be a rock star, with attitude.
And then, like a Hollywood movie, Robbie upset fans by releasing Rudebox, an album that didn't live up to expectations, followed by several uncool TV appearances. Meanwhile, the other four reformed and became big again, with singles, albums and amazing live shows. It was like payback time, but instead of rubbing his nose in it, the four encouraged the eventual return of their prodigal member.
No one knows how long the reunion will last, well, the lawyers and accountants probably do, but even if he is not back for good, the first time he steps on stage as a member of Take That will be a fantastic showbusiness experience.
